SMALLFOOT (Movie Review)


Migo is a happy and contented yeti, as yetis go. He loves being a part of his big-footed community in the Himalayan mountains. And like everyone there, he enjoys each day and knows his job.

Migo is next in line to become the village gong-ringer, once his father retires. It's an important job, too. The gong-ringer flings himself across the valley and smacks that gong each morning with his own rugged noggin. It's painful work—a job that's flattened his dad's dome and left him a few feet shorter—but, hey, how else will the glowing Sky Snail know that it's time to rise in the east?

Yep, everyone knows his or her part by heart. And they know the rules, too. You see, their happy little yeti village has existed for hundreds of years, safe in the knowledge that all of their laws and histories are carved into small stones. The stones tell them, for instance, that they all fell from the backside of the Great Yak. The stones also declare that the yetis' cloud-shrouded mountain sits on the back of a phalanx of wooly mammoths. And other great facts.

Those stones are kept and worn as a garment by the Stonekeeper—a learned yeti sage who reminds them all of their sacred laws and truths. In fact, one of the stone laws is never to question the stones. Ever. And Migo never would have dreamed of doing such a thing except … except for the fact that he saw something. Something unexpected. Something startling. Something … small.

One day while practicing his flying gong bonk, he missed his mark and wound up out on a mountainside where he saw none other than the fabled Smallfoot.

This tiny little creature (that some call a "hew-mon") doesn't really exist. Or at least that's what the stones say. But Migo saw one. Its winged vehicle crashed down on the mountainside, and Migo saw the itty-bitty thing with his own big, round eyes. But by the time Migo ran back to the village to bring witnesses, all remnants of the crash had mysteriously slipped off the side of the mountain to be hidden away beneath the clouds.

The Stonekeeper says Migo must be mistaken. But when Migo keeps asking questions, The Stonekeeper banishes Migo from the village until he's learned the proper lesson: Some questions just need to be pushed away and forgotten.

But Migo isn't really in the mood for lessons. He wants the truth. And if that means traveling down the mountainside, past the clouds and down into the places where the stones said they never should go, well that's exactly what Migo is going to do.

Because, well, some questions just have to be asked. Some stones need to be challenged. Even if that means Migo might never return to his safe and happy village ever again.
